VIDEO: Janelle Monae Performs 'Dance Apocalyptic' & 'Electric Lady' on SNL
Janelle Monae joined Edward Norton last night as the featured musical guest on SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE - below, check out her performances of 'Dance Apolocalyptic' and 'Electric Lady!'
With "THE ELECTRIC LADY," Janelle Monáe more than affirms the rapturous acclaim that greeted her now-legendary 2010 debut, "THE ARCHANDROID." The album sees the inimitable singer/songwriter/producer/performer/CoverGirl creating an epic new "emotion picture" inspired by her raw personal dreams and experiences and the stories of such courageous, powerful women as groundbreaking icons Dorothy Dandridge, Sally Ride and Cindi Mayweather. The musical language is equally innovative, an urgent, inventive future-pop fraught with mind-melting funk, rebel raps, punk energy, soaring guitars, day-glo synthesizers, psychedelic soul string arrangements, and Monaé's own astonishing, utterly idiosyncratic artistry.
